Terry Kahl, 25, of Railroad Avenue in Bliss, was being held in lieu of $10,000 bail He was charged Sunday with first-degree robbery and fourth-degree grand larceny and arraigned in Riga Town Court. Kahl was accused of robbing the Wendy's Family Restaurant at 3200 Chili Ave. in Chili Center Plaza. The robbery occurred about 5:15 p.m., when a man walked in, told a clerk he had a gun and demanded money. The robber did not display a weapon. The clerk handed over more than $300 in cash, and the man walked out, said Monroe County Sheriffs Lt. Mike Broida.

Advertising campaign focuses on elder abuse A new advertising campaign is designed to raise awareness of elder abuse. Lifespan, a nonprofit agency dedicated to improving the quality of life for senior citizens, began the 10-county public awareness campaign Sept. 7. The spot, which features a senior citizen warning that elder abuse can happen to anyone, is running on television and radio, and in newspapers, through December, said Ann Cook, Lifespan's director of financial and consumer services. The campaign was paid for with a $120,000 state grant. While elder abuse often brings to mind images of physical violence, Cook said that neglect and financial exploitation were more common. If you are a victim of elder abuse, or know someone who is, call Lifespan at 454-3224 ext. 147 for help.

The Town Board voted 4-1 Sun day night to place a resolution on the November ballot asking residents to authorize a $1.5 million bond to pay for the new center. The center would be built be hind Town Hall and would have space for recreation and senior-citizen programs. At a $1.5 million cost, the owner of a $66,000 home the town's average would pay an additional $45 annually in taxes for 25 years, a 13 percent increase. Tm for it, said Paul Moses of Curtisdale Lane. "As a parent and as a resident of the town, I see it as needed. I'm willing to pay that extra money in taxes to have that. But Jim Doan, who owns a honey bee farm on Morton Road, isn't sure now is the time to build the center. Doan's children attend Kendall schools and are in that town's recre ation programs. change what we're doing, to go to Flu FROM PAGE IB grant from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, with a goal of vaccinating 60 percent of seniors in the county by 2000. The vaccine protects against pneumococcal bacteria, which causes the most common forms of pneumonia, meningitis and bacteremia, a potentially fatal blood in-fectioa About 20,000 Americans could be saved each year if more people got the vaccine, the CDC says. But the vaccme does not help the people most at risk of getting pneumococcal disease children under age 2, Bennett said. For them, a new vaccine under development holds the most hope. A study released Friday found that the experimental vaccine was almost 100 percent effective in tests on 38,000 children. "It's a great time," said Dr. John Treanor, an infectious disease Cornerstone unveiled for Bronx botany study center THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK A cornerstone was unveiled yesterday for a $39 million Plant Studies Center at the New York Botanical Garden, the latest in a series of major projects to expand and modernize the 107-year-old institution in the Bronx. The study center, to be completed in 2001, will house the Herbarium, with six million plant specimens, and the LuEsther T. Mertz Library, with 270,000 volumes and a million non-book items relating to botany and horticulture. The facility will be available to researchers in environmental studies; conservation; plant genetics; ethnobotany (the relationship between plants and people); evolutionary theory and the search for new medicine, food and fuel resources. The five-story, sand-colored building housing the center is already in place as an extension of the Garden's 1900-vintage, Beaux Arts museum, but the internal facilities are still to be completed. The museum itself is undergoing a major $6.5 million renovation as part of the garden's seven-year, $200 million master plan. Sen. Alfonse D'Amato, R-N.Y., who along with Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan, D-N.Y., helped to secure federal funds for the project, pulled a tassel to unveil the cornerstone of the new study center. "Botany is an historical science," said Gregory Long, president of the Botanical Garden. "Even the most technologically advanced new research, such as DNA sequencing, sends scientists back to specimens, books and field notes that may be hundreds of years old." As if to underscore the point, yesterday's ceremony included the placing of a time capsule in the stone, containing letters from each senator, published articles, a library card and its Internet counterpart, and glass jars with DNA test-ready samples of rose petals and sugar maple leaves, from New York's official state flower and tree. Long said the enhanced protection and accessibility provided by the new Plant Studies Center would enable science to perform many the Hamlin center." Doan said. "I understand why they're looking at it; we're definitely growing, but I don't think it's at the right time." Councilman Jeff Simek, who cast the dissenting vote, doesn't believe enough information exists to put the proposal before voters. "It is clearly the largest single decision that has ever been made in this town's history," Simek said. "There are some significant questions that to my satisfaction have not been answered." Simek's concerns include continuing maintenance costs of the building and staff salaries. He said once those costs were factored in, the tax increase could be as much as 30 percent. Recreation Director Don McPherson said the commission had discussed scheduling more public meetings before November. "We want the taxpayers to be informed, and we want them to be comfortable with this proposition," he said. McPherson said there might be grant money available to help fund the center, but the town couldn't apply for those grants until the referendum passed. doctor at the University of Rochester who was at the conference where the findings were announced. ' "We're seeing a lot of promising steps forward. The thing we don't know is whether the new pneumonia vaccine would also be better for the elderly." UR plans to study that, Treanor said. Senior citizens will be enrolled in two groups, one receiving the experimental pneumonia vaccine, the other getting the existing vaccine. A nasal spray flu vaccme, Flu-Mist, is also being studied by Treanor and others. It provided more protection last year against the flu than the approved vaccine. This year's flu vaccine contains three strains of influenza A-Syd-ney, A-Beijing and B-Harbin, Tre-anorsaid. pf"''&& ' ' ' Last year, scientists guessed wrong. A-Sydney turned out to be the dominant flu strain, and it was not in the vaccine. "We were one of the more hard-hit areas last year," Treanor said.3 tasks more effectively such as predicting plants' potential value in medicine or determining how air pollution alters habitat, and helping governments and private organizations develop conservation policies. The center will occupy a nearly windowless five-story building, an extension of the 1900-vintage, Beaux Arts museum which itself is undergoing a major $6.5 million renovation as part of the garden's seven-year, $200 million capital improvement plan. The new structure will have a computerized climate control system to protect everything from 500-year-old books to rare plant species at customized temperature and humidity levels.
